That is cool. Mine is the Vater H220 or Vic Firth A55, which are about the same. They are both in between a 5A and a 5B. Peace and goodwill.

Mine is the Steve Jordan signature, lol. The 7A's a nice size too. Sometimes I play Benny Greb's Pro Mark or ?uestlove's Vic Firth - they're cool, but on different sides of the wooden spectrum. Hehe...

I think Carter Beauford found his favorite stick too. Hey you guys have something in common!

My favourite stick is probably the Vic Firth 8D's with grip tape.

8D's are a mix between a 5A and a 7A; they have the length of a 5A, but they are as thin as a 7A, therefore the weight is somewhere in between the two standard models.

I find them perfect for my playing (indie/rock/funk/pop) and they are pretty durable too.

I've also played for over 20 years with other sticks and models (5A, Vater Fusions, etc..), but now I've found my perfect all around stick: the Vic Firth SD9 Driver. It's a little bigger than a 5B but made of maple, so it has the feel of a big stick but the light weight of a small stick. I've used these for the last 2 years and I don't think I'll ever try another.
